1
00:00:41,600 --> 00:00:42,800
Chances are

2
00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:46,000
you've never heard of
Preston Thomas Tucker...

3
00:00:46,100 --> 00:00:47,000
dreamer,

4
00:00:47,100 --> 00:00:48,000
inventor,

5
00:00:48,100 --> 00:00:49,400
visionary,

6
00:00:49,500 --> 00:00:51,900
a man ahead of his time.

7
00:00:56,500 --> 00:00:57,900
Pretty, isn't it?

8
00:00:58,000 --> 00:01:00,500
Mr. Tucker's car
has everything...

9
00:01:00,600 --> 00:01:02,500
pop-out safety windows,
rear motor.

10
00:01:02,600 --> 00:01:05,400
Oh, but I'm getting
ahead of my story.

11
00:01:05,500 --> 00:01:08,400
The first time
he ever saw an automobile,

12
00:01:08,500 --> 00:01:10,900
he was just
a young boy.

13
00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:12,400
In his excitement,

14
00:01:12,600 --> 00:01:15,500
he found the wheels
passing over his feet.

15
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:17,500
The muddy road was soft.

16
00:01:17,600 --> 00:01:19,000
He wasn't hurt.

17
00:01:19,100 --> 00:01:22,000
That was the first view
of the machine

18
00:01:22,100 --> 00:01:25,000
that was to mold
his thoughts and actions

19
00:01:25,100 --> 00:01:26,500
most of his life.

20
00:01:26,600 --> 00:01:29,500
Determined to learn
how cars were made,

21
00:01:29,600 --> 00:01:31,000
he went to Detroit,

22
00:01:31,100 --> 00:01:33,000
where he met Vera Fuqua.

23
00:01:33,100 --> 00:01:35,000
They were married,

24
00:01:35,100 --> 00:01:38,100
and, wasting no time,
began a family.

25
00:01:38,200 --> 00:01:41,100
He never lost sight
of his dream

26
00:01:41,200 --> 00:01:42,600
to design
and manufacture

27
00:01:42,700 --> 00:01:44,700
the finest automobile
ever made.

28
00:01:45,800 --> 00:01:48,200
He spent
every minute he could

29
00:01:48,300 --> 00:01:49,700
at the Indianapolis
Speedway,

30
00:01:49,800 --> 00:01:51,700
teaming up
with Harry Miller,

31
00:01:51,800 --> 00:01:54,700
one of the greatest
designers of racing cars

32
00:01:54,800 --> 00:01:56,200
who ever lived.

33
00:01:58,100 --> 00:02:01,000
In 1936, Mr. Tucker
saw the war clouds

34
00:02:01,100 --> 00:02:02,400
looming on the horizon

35
00:02:02,500 --> 00:02:03,900
and began working

36
00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:07,000
on a high-speed
combat car.

37
00:02:07,100 --> 00:02:09,500
It was bulletproof,
had air conditioning,

38
00:02:09,600 --> 00:02:12,200
and mounted
a power-operated gun turret.

39
00:02:12,300 --> 00:02:15,700
The combat car was
turned down by the military.

40
00:02:15,800 --> 00:02:18,200
It had one drawback,
they said.

41
00:02:18,300 --> 00:02:19,700
It was too fast.

42
00:02:19,800 --> 00:02:22,700
The War Department's
policy then was

43
00:02:22,800 --> 00:02:26,700
no combat car should go
over 35 miles an hour.

44
00:02:29,800 --> 00:02:31,500
His gun turret,
however,

45
00:02:31,600 --> 00:02:34,400
was immediately
put into service.

46
00:02:34,500 --> 00:02:37,100
Who knows how many
brave Americans

47
00:02:37,200 --> 00:02:39,600
owe their lives
to Tucker's turret?

48
00:02:39,700 --> 00:02:41,200
Where were they built?

49
00:02:41,300 --> 00:02:44,200
In the most practical
place Tucker imagined...

50
00:02:44,300 --> 00:02:46,600
the barn
by his Michigan home
